Question about Cars & Trucks
Have a 96' Bobcat with a fully charged battery. It had started, I got off, got back on and the manual lock wouldn't release. Finally realized I had no lights on the BICS and BOSS. Figured it was a fuse, checked, wiggled..... lights came on. Loaded Bobcat on the trailer. When we arrived same problem no lights but no wigggling or changing of fuses would bring them on.

The #3 fuse does service both windows and door locks and #2 services a control module that affects door locks.
Inspect them closely since the fuse element can crack when blowing and this is much harder to see.
Pull a least #3 and plug it back in in case the contact blades have stopped comunicating with the mating connector.
To troubleshoot this effectively, you really need a cheap multimeter and the Haynes service manual for your car, #89101.
The manual has very good electrical diagrams in section 12 so you can logically trace the problem. They are available at most every auto parts chain store and cost ~ $20-25 US.

no... no power to anything means like the headlights are inop and such
in that case its a battery or battery cable issue
assuming you have headlights and power to accessories and the vehicle still will not start AND the theft light is flashing then YES your anti-theft system is trying to keep the car from what it thinks is a theft issue
simply pressing the unlock button on your remotes will resolve this
assuming you do not have the remotes then you will need the anti-theft computers reprogrammed at a dealer or good garage
keep us posted
